the system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation
hi i am getting ready to upgrade my win 2003 domain to a win 2008 domain but have one issue i cannot seem to resolve.
i am running a 'ris server' with multiple xp images ok.
i have also now created an image via 'risetup.exe' onto my ris server just like i did with with 1st xp flat image.
the issue i have is that i 'pre-staged' a machine by adding the 'hostname & mac address' via my master dc aduc.
i then successfully received my win 2003 image installed onto my secondary domain member server.
when i logged on, it only allowed me to logon to the domain and 'no local user account was created' which was expected.
i then attempted to install sp2 but this would not install showing the below:
"you do not have permission to update win server 2003"
i decided to create a local 'admin' account and then logged on locally & installed sp2 successfully
i then logged onto the secondary domain member server and attempted to install 'isa 2006', but it prompts a message:
" is that after installing 'win 2003' image onto another server"
note: as i am not using 3rd party software there was no requirement to use: sysprep in order to select 'generalize' - as advised previously.
so have used 'riprep.exe' for my xp.
question 1. does anyone know if there is a way to resolve this as i have tried 'delegation, batch job, service, via my gpo and that appears not to resolve my issue ?
it maybe the proper way but i am not sure, so i was thinking about 'not pre-staging' my win 2003 domain member server and just installing and adding a new name later, to see if that rectifies my problem - but i have not tried that yet ?
note: i am aware i could have used the 'setup manager' to do the below but thought i would try the below:
i just assumed that if i wish to take control of machines i thought 'pre-staging' was one method of doing things but did not realise the issue i would have via domain admin account installing sp2 and did not realise the issue via the domain admin account when installing isa 2006 receiving the below message:
"the system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"
i would like to know if the above can be put right, unless there was a specific 'update' to fix those issues above.
as a way round i have i have now removed the server from the domain although i had to logon locally to do that as when logged onto the domain, it would not allow me to do that due to it also being dimmed out.
so i have now rebooted the server and just completed a new image install without using the 'pre-staged' functionality and i have also attempted to install isa 2006 which all appears ok. so i am now continuing to install sp2 before i do install isa 2006.
